MTR West Island Line Assessment

Mass Transit Railway Corporation (MTRC) collaborated with the Community Project Workshop (CPW) of the Faculty of Architecture at HKU as one of the community stakeholders of the West Island Line to implement a series of public engagement programs. MTRC joined hands with academics, students and community groups to go into the local districts to introduce the three new stations: Sai Ying Pun, HKU, and Kennedy Town. These new MTR stations will be equipped with new facilities and new artwork to inform the general public of the district’s historical heritage and art aspirations. CPW is undertaking a three-stage engagement program to 1) nurture a group of university student ambassadors to assist the local districts to better understand the stations and their facilities; 2) to create a historical trail that will explain how the new stations are integrated into the local heritage; and 3) a public architecture exhibition which will display 3D installations featuring the evolution of MTR, and how our urban landscape changed over the years will be balances both new and old urban elements.
